Following a sold-out run at the Southbank Centre in London, Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents the U.S. premiere of Prurience, an experiential entertainment about pornography, written and directed by Christopher Green and codirected by Holly Race Roughan (People, Places & Things).
After interviewing neuroscientists, sociologists, addiction experts, and therapists, British writer and performer Christopher Green presents an immersive theater experience inviting audiences to attend a fictional self-help group that takes a playful look at how sex and pornography are consumed. Questioning the side effects of porn consumption, Green asks audiences to consider if society is in the grip of an actual addiction or a moral panic, through increasingly distorting layers of reality and theatricality. Expect witty observations, surprises, and more than a few laughs. Casting to be announced.
